I am waffling today. I came back to SparkPeople a bit ago and have been secretly tracking what I have been eating, which is not much because I have been doing Medifast for that quick fix, telling myself I will transition into SparkPeople eating once I lose ... oh however many pounds is enough. I read an article on SparkPeople this morning that now has me waffling about how I am approaching what has been a lifelong issue for me. How to get it off and keep it off. Intellectually, I know how to do it. The theory is there, the practice is lacking. I know it is a day at a time and if you go off, get right back on. And I do that, though sometimes, like this year, I have jumped tracks, run off in the forest and lost my way.
I need some Hansel and Gretel breadcrumbs to help me find my way back. Actually what I really need is simple consistency, patience and time. Not sure where I will find those things because at 50 I am pretty set in my ways. Change in some things is not something I embrace with open arms.
I found a suggestion on where to find more time today ... shut off the tv. Where can I find the ability to be consistent?
